To whom it may concern:   
 
First I would like to start with saying I was in a accident on July 7th 2009 on Interstate 20. Because of the protective gear that I was   wearing I came out with very minimum damage. I have a broken hand, fractured collar bone, and a badly bruised foot. The protective  gear I was wearing was Highway Hawks Chaps, a reflective jacket by Throttle Threads, a Daytona carbon fiber helmet, a Milwaukee vest,  and a pair of XElement boots. I was going 70mph when I was cut off and ran off the road by a vehicle where I decided to push away  when I realized I was no longer be able to gain control over it. From the bottom of our hearts my family and I would like to show  the highest appreciation for your products because they limited the damage to the extreme minimum. My wife is pregnant and the  last thoughts that I can remember was her raising our child alone. I want to thank you guys for makin it possible for me to be here   for the baby. My bike! was very important to me, but with this incident it has shown me what is important. The companies that make the protective gear made it possibe for me to be here. Although I do not have a bike anymore I do have my family, which is the most important. Eventually I will get another bike and I will always wear the protective gears made by these companies. I also   thought you guys might want to know that there was very minimum damage to the protective gear. There was minor scuffs, no tears,  and in fact the scuffs may go away with washing. So with that being said I want you guys to know that your gear does work.
